The Modern Warfare 2 RPK is one of the best LMGs in the game, so here’s the best loadout for it so you can take full advantage of its strengths.

There are plenty of weapons to choose from in Modern Warfare 2, from close-range SMGs to ranged one-shot precise Sniper Rifles like the MCPR-300.

Some like to run and gun while others like to put a massive mag on their weapon and stay patient. Those who like to do the latter usually lean toward the LMG weapon category. For those LMG lovers who are also fans of the classic AK, the RPK might be the weapon for you.

That said, here’s the best RPK loadout in Modern Warfare 2, including the optimal attachments, Perks, and Equipment to use.

Best Modern Warfare 2 RPK loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Eight-Point Flash Hider
  • Optic: XRX On-Point Optic
  • Laser: Schlager PEQ Box IV
  • Underbarrel: FSS Sharkfin 90
  • Rear Grip: Demo-X2 Grip

First off, both the Eight-Point Flash Hider muzzle and Demo-X2 Grip will help greatly with the RPK’s recoil, as well as concealing some of the weapon’s muzzle flash.

The Schlager PEQ Box IV provides some aim down sight speed, balancing the cons of the muzzle and XRX On-Point Optic. Lastly, we have also chosen to use the FSS Sharkfin 90 underbarrel, as it has no negative effects while improving the weapon’s aiming idle stability.

Best Perks & Equipment for Modern Warfare 2 RPK loadout

  • Base Perk 1: Bomb Squad
  • Base Perk 2: Double Time
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: Quick Fix
  • Tactical Equipment: Flash Grenade
  • Lethal Equipment: Drill Charge
  • Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

We’ve gone for Bomb Squad for protection against Lethal Equipment and Double Time for added mobility when running around the map with this heavy RPK LMG.

For this loadout, the Fast Hands Bonus Perk and Quick Fix Ultimate Perk are essential for staying on the move and being ready for a gunfight at any moment.

As for Equipment, you can’t go wrong with the Flash Grenade for flushing out rooms and lines of sight, while the Drill Charge has become a fan-favorite.

How to unlock the RPK in Modern Warfare 2

The RPK is unlocked through the Kastovia platform by getting the Kastov 762 to level 16. You can unlock the Kastov 762 by reaching Rank 23, so you won’t have to grind much until you can unlock the RPK.

Best RPK alternatives in Modern Warfare 2

The best alternatives to the Modern Warfare 2 RPK include the 556 Icarus, which is another LMG with great long-range potential, while still retaining some mobility.

If you’d prefer to run something slightly lighter, the STB 556 is a great Assault Rifle with high damage and range.
